well with that mentality, you're likely to never be impressed by anything. ever. think about it, in all the history humanity has gone through, EVERYTHING that could have been done in terms of art (be it music, visual arts, literature etc etc) has already been done. See a great painting in a gallery? guess what, hundreds of artists have done something rediculously similar. Does that make it any less valid as artwork or any less beautiful? it's up to you. The same applies to music. If you have that mentality, you're going to miss out on some great music, because no matter how much something reminds you of something else, how many traces of another band are in that song, or how strongly their influences show, if it is truly great music, there will be SOMETHING, even the tiniest miniscule detail to set it apart, and make it something worthwhile.

It usually takes a bit to impress me with many things be it fashion,automobilia,music etc,but some of it eventually gets through so maybe it's time I stopped living in the past.No it is time I stopped living in the past.....except for my cars.

Its about corperate magazines like rolling stone and bloated record companys who try to push the image that Rock N Roll covers all music, which is a lie. Rock N Roll has become crap, in order for music to progress, Rock N Roll needs to die.
It doesn't necessarily have to die. It just needs a wicked band to come along and push the boundaries once again.

Or....Maybe it does....Maybe a new style of great music needs to emerge from all the fakeness of today's society. Something that is previously unheard of.

i know, the point of the thread is he was saying music today is dead, incinuating theres nothing fresh or varied around anymore. but we know thats not true. at least in the indie scene.
